Getting vaccinated even after the flu season ended

Flu season must be over, however Commissioner Dr. Gregory Larkin recommends that people still get vaccinated.

” We don’t know what to expect in the upcoming months, so I still urge people to get the H1N1 flu vaccine.”

An article published in The Journal Gazette by Amanda Iacone declares that the virus could easily rebound. Tests were done during the height of the virus’ spread last fall, and out of nearly 1,000 specimens, 98 percent tested positive. Children, teens and college-aged adults made up 84 percent of those samples, and with a recent fatal flu case occurring this past week, the best option is to protect ourselves as early as possible.

” Flu vaccine that will be available this fall will protect residents against both the seasonal and H1N1 virus, state health officials said.”

Let’s get vaccinated. Better be safe than sorry.
